Redecorate Your Living Room In Few Simple Steps – It happens to all of us at one time or another, and it doesn’t matter what type of home you live in, whether renting or you are a homeowner. You take a look around your home and decide that it’s time for a ‘design facelift’. The surroundings that have provided comfort and enjoyment are now looking tired and ordinary. But, your home decor budget is slim to none, so what do you do? Don’t give up before you start. Here are five easy, simple, inexpensive to no cost home decor changes you can make right now that will give any room in your home a fresh, new and interesting look. These strategies will be applied to your living room in this article, but will work effectively in any room of your home.
First, clean out the clutter. The ‘stuff’ we own can accumulate over time, and eventually can become a hindrance and get in our way. Take living room in your home individually so you won’t become overwhelmed with the task. Then, remove anything that you have not used in the last three months. You may have set a floral arrangement or some other type of decor on a table thinking you would find a permanent home for it later, and there it still sits. Move it. You may be surprised at how much brighter your living room looks when they are clutter free.
The next home decorating idea in this project is to rearrange the furniture in the living room. You may need to enlist some help with this step, so plan ahead and gather a few pairs of hands to accomplish the task. If you have not moved your sofa in two years or more, it is time for a change! You may not have many options if your living area is small or limited in other ways. At a minimum, pull the sofa away from the wall and angle it toward the television, or whatever the focal point is in this area. You might be limited to a move as subtle as pulling one end of the sofa about a foot or so from the wall. But wait, you’re not finished yet. Then, take the other seating in the room and angle it just a little bit, swapping locations of chairs (if you have more than one in the room). Now step back and notice that your living room has taken on a different feel because the position and angles of the larger pieces have been changed. Your interior decor project is making progress!
The next step after giving your room’s largest pieces a new perspective is to rearrange the home accessories. Bring in accessories from another room, or take the extra inventory of pictures out of the closet and try something different in this room. Go ahead and take a decorating risk!
That leads right into the fourth easy and no cost home decorating idea for you. Take a careful look at the color scheme in your living room and add a new, never before used accent color to the area. If you’re not sure what type of color could be added, here is one course of action. Purchase something small and returnable, such as an accent pillow, and just try it. What is the worst thing that will happen? You won’t like it and will take it back to the store. But, you might love it. When that happens, you will be able to add, in a small way, more of this color to the room. Remember this rule, though; more is not always better. Be thoughtful and particular about where you place this new color. If you make careful selections and placements in the living room, your room will have a breath of new life.
If you desire, there is one more home decor idea to introduce to the living room, and that is the addition of some beautiful greenery. Placing greenery in the room can provide the finishing touches to your interior design project. Again, use a light touch with the indoor plants or small trees.
Now that you have successfully made these easy, simple and low or no cost home decorating changes, step back and enjoy your surroundings. Better yet, take a break, have some refreshment and enjoy the view from a new perspective.
